“Before any plant of the field was in the earth…” (V5)
The old woman smiled as she entered the small, hot room. A blaze of colour met her eyes African violets of many shades of pink, purple, white, red, and blue, and variegated mixtures of these colours, filled the room. The room had not always looked like this. When she and her husband had first built this house many years before this had been their children’s play room. Then, toys had filed the shelves.
Over the years, she had spent many hours here. At first only one of the many shelves had contained plants. Now the original shelves were completely filled and others had been added. She still remembered her joy when her violets bloomed for the first time. Some of her friends had tried to discourage her new adventure. In time she had come to understand that her plants had failed because she had not given them sufficient care. Since then, she had spent part of every day in this room, watering her plants, checking for insects pets, rooting new cuttings, fertilizing the plants to blossom.
Now, her skill in cultivating and breeding African violets was known throughout the community, and over the years she had found great joy in teaching others the art of cultivating plants. Every year her conservatory was considered to be the highlight of the garden tour. (Myles Munroe)
